^^+1 about the EQ pedal.

TS, have you tried SD Blackouts? I have them in one of my guitars (the standard AHB-1s). They are warmer and slightly looser than the usual EMG 81/85 set -- but still in...

^^+1000

Though I'd argue that 6505s often don't even need that much gain if they're boosted. I can run my gain as low as "3" and there's still enough grind and saturation for death metal and black...

I think I've been able to do it all along. Even when I was 9 years old, I could work out the basic melody of a song on a keyboard in just a few minutes. I think there's a spectrum of people that...

I think an open back cab makes a little more sense for your playing style. What I've found with open back cabs vs. closed back is that open backs actually let more bass/low end ring through, but...

Drop B you say? What scale length is your guitar? (that makes a difference.) I have my 25.5" scale guitar setup for C# Standard/Drop B and it's got a .13-.62 set. The .62 isn't really necessary...

I agree with that 100%. It's not an evolution I particularly care for, but it is one nonetheless. I don't think it has seen its full development yet either. It will be interesting to see.

+1

I've tried it one time with mine and it sounded utterly terrible. Doesn't sound AT ALL like the tone you get through the speaker. Even a cheap mic placed badly sounds better.

Using the words "upgrade" and "Marshall MG 30 FX" in the same sentence is an oxymoron.
